Hi Team,

We wanted to add another time sync method in phosphor-time-manager to get the time from the host and set it to BMC. To have this option configurable I propose a dbus property in the time interface(given below). Please provide your feedback/comments.
    - name: Method

        - name: NTP
          description: >
            Sync by using the Network Time Protocol.
        - name: Manual
          description: >
            Sync time manually.
         - name: HostSync
          description: >
            Sync the time from host.
